Expanding Voter Access
We fight to increase voters’ access to the polls, including expanding early voting, automatic and online voter registration.
Congressional districts and government legislative bodies should be apportioned substantially on population. We oppose partisan and racial gerrymandering that strips rights away from voters.
Money in Politics
Elections should be about the voters not big money interests. It’s time to limit SuperPACs and secret donors to protect representative democracy.
Fighting Voter Suppression
We challenge all efforts and tactics that threaten our democracy and limit the ability of voters to exercise their right to vote.

Resources & Toolkits
Making Democracy Work requires advocating for policies that benefit all, including universal affordable healthcare. These resources are provided by the LWV National Healthcare Reform Committee (HCR4US) whose caucus was chaired at the 2018 convention by Michelle Dorsey, M.D., of the LWV Metro Phoenix.
Global climate change is one of the most serious threats facing our nation and our planet today. Increasingly severe consequences are projected for more people and more regions of the world unless we act now -- as individuals, as communities, and as a nation.
A guide designed to help League members use LWVUS public policy positions effectively at the national, state, local, and regional levels. The intention is to inspire Leagues to use national positions to act in their own communities.
